Curbed Cup 1st Round: (2) South Beach vs. (15) Doral

The Curbed Cup, our annual award for Miami’s neighborhood of the year, is kicking off with 16 neighborhoods vying for the prestigious (fake) trophy. We’ll reveal each of the neighborhoods this week, and polls will be open for 24 hours so you can cast your vote as to which ones should advance. Let the eliminations commence!

(2) South Beach

Miami’s party capital is still searching for its first crown. This year brought another magnificent penthouse listing, a condo for sale owned by the late Zaha Hadid, several residential developments in the works, and the announcement of a couple of new market dining concepts in The Lincoln Eatery and Timeout Market.

Meanwhile, South Beach’s defense against flooding continues as the city’s pump system gets fully integrated.

(15) Doral

This popular neighborhood just west of Miami International Airport is certainly on the rise after being named the third fastest-growing city in the state. CityPlace Doral opened this year and a TopGolf broke ground in the fall.

This is one of our final two matchups of the opening round and be sure to check back on Friday for the full bracket and first-round recap.
